The Medical History and Physical Exam Form is required for all incoming cadets. Positive answers on the medical history form must be fully explained.
In some cases, supplemental reports will be required from attending physicians, surgeons, mental health professionals, etc. These documents will be used to determine if an applicant meets the physical standards for admission to The Citadel.
Students who are denied admission because of medical disqualification shall receive a refund of any advance deposits. Failure to report previous medical illnesses or conditions will be grounds for termination of a cadet’s career, with forfeiture of appropriate tuition and fees.
Cadets who are not able to fully participate in cadet life because of a recurrence of a previous disorder will be evaluated by a Medical Review Board to determine suitability to continue in the Corps of Cadets.
